Apparently WGR 550 in Buffalo has now switched from three sports updates per hour to two (one at the top of the hour and one at the bottom)………………1050 has had two sports updates per hour ever since they started a couple of years ago…………….I wonder if 590 will ever switch from three updates per hour to two

I feel like it’s inevitable, the 3 updates per hour thing is pretty intrusive, and is there a need for that many updates? I’m sure if something is breaking RIGHT THEN, the hosts can fill us in.

I caught all of the roundtable tonight on PTS and for the first time in a very long time I can actually say I enjoyed it. Grange and Tim (especially Grange) actually stood up for themselves during a couple different arguments with Bob. Also Grange tore into Friedman on the whole KHL/NHL discussion. That was good to see, I can’t stand Friedman 90% of the time as he is just way too smug. Too bad all or most of the roundtables had that much energy, they should make those 3 the regular or at least semi regular guests for it.

What’s funny is that when Bob announced the roundtable at 4:00, he assumed Shannon was on it and then had to correct himself. Of course, Perkins was also supposed to be on it and was replaced I guess by Tim.

It was a feisty roundtable. Don’t remember one like that since Arthur was still there.

BTW< they had a "football roundtable" at 4:00 on 1050 with Hogan filling in that hour for Naylor. They had a Hernandez discussion and once again, no mention of Jovan Belcher. It's amazing how quickly people in the media have forgotten that an NFL player killed his girlfriend and then killed himself of team grounds.

Grange came out firing and really tore some of the other guys to pieces, especially on the Bargnani front when he (correctly) highlighted the fact that Bargnani is not an efficient scorer. A lot of people don’t realize this guy is a below average 3 pt shooter and he has an opportunity cost of taking up a position that is supposed to get offensive rebounds.

Also showed solid logic on the khl/nhl thing when the other guys are all saying the KHL is bad for the NHL but won’t say the Euroleague or the China money is bad for the NBA.

nice link Nan. this part really stood out

“industry analyst David Bank told Bloomberg Businessweek that 80 percent of basic-cable customers would decline to pay for sports if given a choice; Forbes writer Alan McGlade figures that no more than 10 million homes are regular ESPN viewers, about 10 percent of the total pay TV market.)”

wow. with so much HDTV content coming free over the air, and Netflix, and Hulu, and iTunes, and Boxee there is indeed a huge bubble in the cable/satellite business model.

Grange definitely said some peculiar things during the PTS roundtable………….this one that he said to McCown is at the top of that list:

“I’ll bet I could dig up audio clips from the past where you said baseball all stars should be voted on by the fans”

Anyone who has listened to McCown over the years would know that he has never thought the fans should be allowed to vote on anything

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
